Apartment Building Worker Accidents

Knowledgeable Apartment Workplace Injury Attorneys

Building workers throughout the five boroughs and surrounding New York counties have a range of duties that may bring them into contact with defective equipment and dangerous conditions. Horrific injuries can result from malfunctions of trash compactors, incinerators and other heavy machinery, putting the victim in need of substantial compensation to cover medical costs, lost wages and other costs.

Should You Pursue A Legal Claim In Addition To Workers' Compensation Benefits?

It is important for building porters, superintendents and other maintenance and caretaking personnel to recognize that workers' compensation may not be their only means of financial recovery if an accident was caused by someone's negligence. Applying decades of experience handling complex personal injury claims, our attorneys are adept at:

  • Determining whether your case justifies a third-party negligence claim against someone other than your employer, such as a building owner rather than the managing agent who employs you
  • Projecting your financial needs based on the nature of your injuries and assessing the value of your case
  • Pursuing just compensation for you through insurance negotiations or at trial, as we have done with positive results in many prior on-the-job injury claims
